Utah Governor Signs HB 260
Not a surprise, but today the Utah governor signed HB 260, the ridiculous Internet service provider-as-filterer law. See my earlier critique (I think there are other objectionable aspects of the bill; I tried to control myself). Anyone want to make predictions: (1) is this law unconstitutional, either under the First Amendment or the dormant commerce clause? (2) will ISPs be protected under 47 USC 230? My vote: yes to both Qs.
